Don't get me wrong. I really like the good ones but those sneaky ones that lay under the canoe or drop out of trees into the boat really really creep me out.

Fishing never stopped me from wrangling them.

(Yes they are all alive and were re-released unharmed.)

What did stop me? Sense after seeing two fellow wranglers lose use of a limb for a good month on account of poor handling. Thats right, one time wasnt enough -- it really took two for it all to sink in.

Copperhead. We dont have cottonmouths. From what Ive read, they are really aggressive. The copperheads are pretty lazy and youd pretty much need to step on one (or handle it -- ha ha) to get bit.

I've got a soft spot for Agkistrodons. Cottonmouths aren't all that aggressive. If they're headed your way they probably just want their belly rubbed.

I have a 15 hour shift tomorrow...and most Fridays I can't get a posting until the day is over. Thanks...I hooked into a nice large mouth that was far too heavy for my 6wt and 5x tippet. I don't know what he weighed but he was about 2ft long and fat as hell. I wanted to land him to show in the FCT thread but he was just too big for me to land...just not enough experience, I guess.

I think maybe the 5X tippet played a bigger part than lack of experience.............

Yeah. I'm nothin but twenty pound. Seriously. From wild brookie dinks to steelfish stocker slobs it's zebco 20 pound for me. But I'm lazy, a moron, and a bad fly fisherman, so there's that.
